Luxury and Upper Upscale Class hotels the most affected
All hotel classes in France have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the Luxury/Upper Upscale segment has been the most affected. On 1 June, Luxury/Upper Upscale hotels sat at 7% occupancy, but by 27 June, the segment had grown to 41% occupancy—a maximum in recent weeks. For comparison, Midscale and Economy posted its highest occupancy level of 51.7% on 1 July.
Paris: 10% occupancy on average
Paris has been sitting around a 10% occupancy level on average. The capital city has maintained France’s lowest occupancy due to a lack of international and corporate tourism. In June, Pays de La Loire posted the highest occupancy level in France.

With summer beginning, Provence-Alpes-Côte d´Azur has posted a nice climb in ADR from 8 June through 4 July. On 3 July, the market saw its highest ADR (EUR243.73) during that time.
